Care provided at Buxton House:

In order to create a homely feel for our residents, Buxton House is divided into four wings, each with a charmingly furnished spacious lounge/diner and kitchen area. The home has been carefully designed to support residents living with dementia, helping them to socialise and engage with their new home.

Our outdoor courtyard, fish pond and fully-secure landscaped garden create a sense of peace and tranquillity for residents and provide the perfect place to relax with a cup of tea and a slice of cake, or socialise with friends and loved ones. Residents also have full use of our on-site café and hair salon.

Buxton House has 64 welcoming and comfortable, fully furnished rooms, each with en-suite toilet and shower facilities and a 24-hour nurse call bell, ensuring residents are comfortable, safe and expertly cared for. We give all our residents support and peace of mind, whether they need just a little assistance, or full-time care and we pride ourselves on doing everything possible to enhance our residents’ quality of life.

Buxton House is situated in the sunny seaside town of Weymouth, which contains an abundance of attractions and has great road and rail links from the east and west. The sandy beaches, gorgeous harbour and spectacular Jurassic Coastline make this area an amazing place to live and residents can take advantage of our day trips to local points of interest.

We strive to enable residents to continue to do what they love, whether that’s popping out for a coffee with friends, assisted by a member of our excellent care team, or enjoying activities with visiting loved ones. Nothing is ever too much trouble for us when it comes to the care and comfort of our residents and we always go the extra mile to help residents safely maintain their lifestyle and independence.

We understand that looking for a care home can be a difficult and daunting process, but we want you to know that you are not alone. Please feel free to give us a call or fill out an enquiry form and we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have, provide you with support throughout the process, or simply give you a better idea of life at Buxton House.

Buxton House is dedicated to ensuring our residents are able to get the most out of every day, whilst feeling safe and supported. For us, it’s all about delivering the three F’s – Food, Fun and Friendship – to enable our residents to live a happy and fulfilling lifestyle.

Recreational activities are organised by our activities coordinator(s) to ensure our residents are having fun and making friends, and range from baking and arts and crafts to visits from entertainers and day trips out to local points of interest and attractions. Despite current restrictions, residents at Buxton House have enjoyed a virtual reality safari holiday and participated in the Buxton House Olympics.

No two residents are the same, and we love to learn about their amazing life stories, hobbies and interests. This helps us to build strong relationships with our residents and allows us to tailor our activities to suit their likes and favourite pastimes. Residents can be as involved as they wish and the activities team work hard to cater for our residents’ recreational desires, enabling them to continue to do the things they love, even if that simply involves sitting down and enjoying a card game or a puzzle.

Please see below for more of the activities that we have been enjoying at Buxton House recently.

Buxton House dining

“Being a care home Chef is a real pleasure. I feel it’s important to get to know the residents, and understand their likes and preferences when it comes to the menu.” – Nick Wrightson, Buxton House Chef

Given our mission to provide our residents with the three F’s – Food, Fun and Friendship – mealtimes are very important to us and our residents love coming together to enjoy delicious, nutritious and wholesome meals with their friends.

Our menu is expertly crafted by our talented Chefs, working closely with our Caterings Operations Manager, and is cooked and prepared onsite by our skilled kitchen staff.  We are passionate about providing high-quality food for our residents, therefore, we cater for all of their dietary requirements and meal preferences and always seek to maintain the same high standards when preparing alternative meals. Refreshments are also available for residents throughout the day.

We currently hold a food hygiene rating of 5/5 stars (date of inspection: 07/02/2019) and strive to provide delicious and nutritious, high-quality meals for all of our residents.
